Default Rear Window Replacement/Upgrade

Hello, thanks in advance for reading my thread. I have an 04 1500 standard cab and recently a rock was thrown through my back window shattering it and the front window. I'm about to replace both the windshield and rear window but figured while im at it I want to make the rear a 3 panel sliding so that I can put a camper shell back there and have the access... anyhow Ive been calling around and have had someone tell me that there is no way i can put a sliding rear window in my truck which i dont get. I've been told that I have to use stock replacement and that aftermarket products will not work with my truck for whatever reason, one guy just said 'its going to be ugly i wont do it'.
what I'm looking for is someone who knows about auto glass to validate if there is any reason why I cannot put a sliding rear window in and if i have to use stock replacement or can go aftermarket.
one example of a place ive seen that makes them for my truck AND has a power rear window too... looks fine to me...

any help is greatly appreciated! and if anyone is in the San Diego area and does auto glass, get a hold of me, id rather do business with someone from the forum...
thanks,
beau

Time for a trip down to Otay Mesa go to
941 Heritage Rd.
Chore Auto Wrecking 2
619-661-7170
ask for Chris, he speaks English

he has a friend close to there that does installation, his friend recently found & installed a windshield in my buddies 2002 Ram, windshield & installation $100

another possibility is near the
Spring Valley Swap Meet

Sweetwater Auto Wrecking
6301 Quarry Rd

It is best to go there in person, be ready to listen, you won't get to talk much
This old guy likes to talk about old vehicles, especially Dodges
He may know more about Dodges than anyone in the County
I hope he is still around, if not i think his son may be running it
the whole fenced in area is full of Chrysler made products

Happy hunting

By the way, Carl Burger Dodge is going to have their annual car show
November 12th, all makes & models, mostly Classics, free food served by Hooters Girls
